CASA VELA - DELUXE HANDCRAFTED 4 BEDROOM OCEANFRONT TREEHOUSE

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

Way cooler than a suite at the Four Seasons or a house in Playa!

Casa Vela is a handcrafted, all hardwood home accommodating four couples in luxurious privacy in four master suites, each with unobstructed views of the ocean on one side and the forest on the other. The white sand beach is at your feet. Hammocks and private lounge chairs downstairs, along with kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, ping-pong, bocce and your own beach bar make this your private club for the week you are in residence.

One suite has a king size bed, living area, enormous dressing area, full bath with standalone marble tub, separate shower and toilet rooms, and outdoor deck with chaise lounges.

Another suite has a king size bed, living area, full bath with separate shower and toilet rooms, and a sleeping loft with two single beds for families with children.

Two additional oversized bedrooms each feature two queen size beds (four queen beds in total) and ensuite bathrooms. One bedroom has a private deck with chaise lounges.

We have wireless Internet, Satellite TV, and large flat panel televisions in every suite.

This is a gourmet vacation with three meals per day prepared by our talented chef.

You may dine outside under the romantic three story palapa, or take a quick snack at the eat-in kitchen table.

As noted above, the bedrooms and the palapa are graced with lovely hardwood furniture custom-made in our workshops. Because of our preference and the fire hazard, we are strictly non-smoking throughout the villa, inside and out. Please do not book the villa if you are a smoker (or if you have pets).

As an ecological resort, we collect rainwater for washing and operate off solar panels, and encourage guests to conserve water and energy, turning off the ceiling fans, A/C, televisions, and lights when not in use. Our connection to the power grid ensures power around-the-clock if the batteries did not charge due to a rare cloudy day.

The house is sited on our 100 acre property, with walking and biking trails, where you will pass through diverse eco systems of forest, jungle, and mangrove, home to more than 20 deer.

To our north, fresh water spring-fed rivers (“cenotes”) are lovely for snorkeling and provide refreshing exercise, swimming against the current. After you make it upstream, you can float back down, Indiana Jones style.

It is also a lot of fun to walk in the other direction up the endless, white sand beach. Once you pass a few hotels you arrive at our favorite beach in the area, in front of the Fairmont MayaKoba golf course. Bring your beach towel, and take a swim in the gentle surf.

Part of the experience at Casa Vela is the interaction with my partner and property manager, a noted breeder of rare birds, and his wife, a licensed biologist who works full-time as a consultant to various hotels and developers on environmental matters. You can reserve some time with them for a fishing trip or a snorkeling tour to the nearby reef on our fishing boat, or just invite them over for a beer and chat about the local flora and fauna, including our spider monkeys, parrots, iguanas, tejones and butterflies.

They can suggest visits to the Mayan pyramids: Tulum less than an hour south, Coba an hour and a half southwest or Chichen-Itza under three hours west, as well as an enjoyable excursion by boat through the canals of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere, with the starting point just south of Tulum.

Casa Vela is completely unlike any house you can rent in Playa del Carmen or a suite at the Four Seasons or Fairmont – much more fun! All of the amenities with none of the crowds. We look forward to hosting you if you are the right match for this experience.

Better than the very best hotel

  • 5 of 5
One of the most beautiful beach homes I've ever experienced, this waterfront playhouse perfectly combines elegance, relaxation, and fun. Woodwork fit for a magazine, hammocks everywhere, ping pong table in the sand, water sports equipment for all tastes - I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Endlich haben wir das Paradies gefunden !

  • 5 of 5
Nach der Ankunft in Cancun und einem kurzen Auto-trip kamen wir an der Playa del Carmen an und waren überwältigt - die Strandvilla hat alle unsere Erwartungen übertroffen !!! Die Anlage liegt direkt an einem herrlichen weissen Sandstrand, es sind nur 10 m bis zum Strand, und der Ausblick ist herrlich. Alle Zimmer sind mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail hergerichtet worden, und wir haben uns wie Könige in der Villa gefühlt. Abends haben wir uns von einem einheimischen Koch verwöhnen lassen und sassen bis spät auf der überdachten Terrasse, die uns am tage kühlen Schatten gespendet hat.

Die Anlage hat auch eine Tischtennisplatte, man kann mit kleinen Segelbooten trips entlang der Küste machen ( es gibt ein paar Laser + Katamarane), und wenn der Wind richtig steht hört man abends die Brandung am Korallenriff - wo man am tage herrliche Tauchgänge machen kann.

Zu Hause angekommen waren wir immer noch überwältigt von der Anlage - man fühlt sich wirklich wie im Paradies!

Traumhaus im Paradies

  • 5 of 5
Sehr schönes und großes Haus auf Stelzen direkt auf dem Strand. Alles ist aus Holz gebaut.
Jedes Zimmer hat sehr bequeme, große Betten; Bad, Dusche und Toilette getrennt; alles pikobello sauber.
Sehr große Küche mit allen möglichen Utensilien. Der Koch und sein Team haben uns mit lokalen und internationalen Köstlichkeiten verwöhnt.
Es gibt eine Theke zwischen Küche und Speiseraum/Wohnzimmer, einen sehr großen Esstisch und einige Sofas zum Entspannen. Die 2 Extra-Toiletten sind auch sehr praktisch, wenn mal Gäste zum Essen kommen.
War jeden morgen entweder segeln, Kajak fahren oder mit einem SUP im Wasser und habe die Benachbarten kleinen Flüsse erkundet.
Man kann auch gut baden gehen, oder den Strand meilenweit entlanglaufen.
Habe außerdem auch eine Bootstour zum Riff zum Schnorcheln gemacht.
Nach einem Tischtennisspiel kann man sich zum Entspannen in die Hängematten oder Liegen legen.
Würde jederzeit wiederkommen.
